Sweet 16 Gifts & Card…

I made these for my niece’s 16th b’day!

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.  My niece turned 16…which means someone else special to me is right behind her.  Where does the time go?

I thought it was important to stick with tradition and do a SWEET 16 theme. 🙂

How to Customize a Candy Bar

I found the really BIG SIZE candy bars in the candy aisle at CVS Pharmacy.  They weren’t at the front counter like I’d found them in the past.  Then I measured the wrapper and just made one the same size using my ATG gun and some paper. 🙂  Cool.

Then, using a Stampin’ Up medium sized treat bag, I poured in two regular sized bags of Sour Patch Kids.  I know…it’s Sweet 16, why sour?  Well, they’re her favorite!  At least you can’t tell what the name of the candy is by my new packaging!

After pouring in the candy, I folded over a Polka Dot piece of cardstock from Papertrey Ink and stapled it closed.  I covered the stapled areas (both back and front) with K & Co. cardstock.  Next, I used my Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge to cut the circle scallop and polka dotted letter “h”.  Actually, I used that cart to do all the things on the bars and the candy.

Now, About the Sweet 16 Card:

I had such a good time making this card.  It was the 1st time I had used eyelets in a project.  So fun!!  And…a great time for me to use my handy, dandy Crop A Dile Big Bite!!  I love that thing!!
